Mortdale Wholesalers

Mr MARK COURE (Oatley) (18:36:14):

Local businesses are the backbone of my community, and many have been a part of the local area for generations. Today I bid farewell to a small business that is very close to my heart, Mortdale Wholesalers. Opening in 1969, Mortdale Wholesalers has been providing homewares, birthday cards, kitchen appliances and much more for over 55 years. It has been a part of Mortdale for as long as I can remember. I have known the owners, Sue and Greg Young, for many years now. While running a successful small business for so long is no easy feat, they have tackled every challenge head-on. One of my former staffers, Shane Kocass, has been a long-time employee of Mortdale Wholesalers, working there since he was in school. It has always been a pleasure to wander by and stop in for a quick chat. I thank Sue and Greg for their service to our community. We will miss them dearly; however, the impact they have left on Mortdale will be remembered for years to come. I wish them the very best for the next chapter in their lives, whatever that may be.
